Second of two shows presented by boomsatsuma, a children’s and young people’s arts and theatre group based by Temple Meads.
They return with Spring Awakening, a musical about a bunch of adolescents and their sexual awakenings in the 1890s.
Based on Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking and controversial play (once banned in Germany) this brilliant rock score and searingly emotional book take the story of sexual awakening, youth revolt, and self-discovery into a new century. It’s 1891, and grown-ups hold all the cards. With only each other for guidance, this group of young men and women travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence. An electric, vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion, Spring Awakening fuses issues of morality, sexuality, and conformity into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch.
This is the final production by the class of 2019 from boomsatsuma’s Professional Acting Course.
